Good start, Logan. The first shot is interesting. I used to create similar effects with my old film SLR by taking a picture, reloading the camera by forwarding the film with the film release button pushed in (by doing this the film would not advance) and then taking another picture on top of the previous. The results were amazing. The flower shot is also nice, very delicate!

I like both shots. The first is a technique I've seen done in the past but never thought of it as light painting. However, that's what it is! The second shot is nice but a bit underexposed. Opening the lens an additional f-stop or holding the flashlight on the flower for an additional second or two would have helped.

Please tell us exactly how you did the first shot.

set the camera (my old dx6490) on a tripod... set exposure for 16 seconds... when hes in the first position (right side) click shutter and take a flash light and go over his whole body... then turn off flashlight and when hes in the second postion (left) turn the flashlight back on and go back over him.

ps i hope that made sense:?

Logan,

Very nice technique. As Tullio said I might try it myself.
